There’s a new card game in town for cat lovers and we can’t get enough of it.

From the makers of Do You Look Like Your Dog? comes a feline version of the memory game.

Do You Look Like Your Cat? launches today (October 12) and it’s perfect for a spot of family fun.

Don’t just take our word for it, though. It appears some pet lovers have got their hands on the new game already and have said it’s the “cat’s whiskers”!
